We’ve put together a selection of high-protein snacks,great post-workout or for a much-needed afternoon boost. Even better? They won’t stop you meeting your macros.

Loaded rice cakes

Quick, easy and absolutely delicious. You can have rice cakes with almost anything, and as they’re low in calories, pile on the toppings! If you have a sweet tooth, try using our peanut butter and sliced banana before sprinkling with chia seeds.

If savoury is more your thing, top with smashed avocado, rocket and tinned tuna. It’s the ideal balance of healthy fats, protein and carbohydrates, even able to be enjoyed as a light lunch!
